Hi All - the last blow out I had did some damage to the left underside of my trailer and I need some advice on how to fix. Two problems remain:

1. There is a copper rod (it looks like a grounding wire) behind the left rear tire. It is hanging down and attached only at one end. I think the flying rubber from the blowout broke it free from one end. Where does this rod attach?

2. It looks like the debris broke some wires for my electric brakes on both left wheels. There are some free (unattached) wires that look like they separated from the connector at the hubs. The left rear has only one wire attached and 2 wires hanging free. The front left has one wire attached and one wire hanging free. When I compare this to the wiring on the undamaged (right) side, each hub has 2 wires only. Should there be 3 wires attached on the left rear hub?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Not sure of your floorplan but....I believe the ground wire (#4 copper?) should go between the converter, power cable junction box and may go up to the battery well.

As far as the brakes go, each of my brakes has two wires for the magnet.

on most units you will have the wire from the pigtail leading to one side, connecting to the brake and another leading to the second side. Therefore on one side you would have 3 wires connected together, 2 on the second. This would not apply if they ran separate leads from the pigtail to each side.

that would be my thoughts - the ground wire from the converter that attaches to the trailers frame... And the crossover wire from one side of the brakes to the other..

Could that copper rod be a propane supply line to your furnace or hot water tank?
